opening up a five-point lead for president obama. the swing states are the most important. we'll get polling on that soon as well, but it looks like there was definitely a bounce in the polls for president obama after the convention. during our coverage on current eliot spitzer predicted a four-point bump. i predicted five. vice president gore, six to eight. it looks like the democratic convention went off better than the republican one if you look at the polls. now that the conventions are over, mitt romney as usual getting himself in more and more trouble. so they're answering the question. you got to under something. mitt romney's tax plan is a disaster for the budget. it would create giant deficits. how can you say you can fight deficits if your plan creates bigger deficits. he says, no, no, i'm going to get rid of the loopholes. >> give me an example of a loophole that you'll close. >> romney: people at high end taxpayers will have fewer deductions and exemptions. those numbers will come down. >> i'm cutting tax on the rich massively, but some of the loopholes i might take away

that you wake the [bleep] up. >> all right. now, president obama and mitt romney are of course out on the campaign trail. they both happen to be in virginia today trying to rally their own troops, and then they've even got ads, as well, where they are both facing the camera which always is slightly awkward if you ask me and making their personal appearances saying you got to vote for me and this is my plan. in has ad that president obama has, it's actually two minutes long if you watch the whole thing, he talks patriotism and how there's a new economic patriotism. >> governor romney believes with bigger tax cuts for the wealthy and fewer wall street regulations all of us would brought speaker. he'd double down on the same fiscal policies that got us here in the first place. our economy begins with a strong thriving middle class. >> it also involves everybody paying their fair share and keeping their money here instead of the cayman islands. i wonder who that might refer to. he didn't mention that in the two minutes but it was implicit. j.k. rowling has a book coming out today. back

right now. when we come back, the congressional black caucus. well obviously they're on president obama's side. they're also saying something interesting, let's keep this real. if you were white would our reaction be different to your policy. >> later the elbow of the day. we know who's delivering it, but who's getting it? >> what i do know is he has helped jump start a new empire. >> thank you for warning us against the menace. then how'd i get this...

game. what is funny here is all of the republicans are saying oh my god, obama is going to win. >> mitt romney has the advantage because he has been through 20 of these debates. >> mitt romney is a business guy, and hasn't had a debate against a democrat in overten years. >> mitt romney is just in practice. >> having been through this much more recently than president obama, i think he starts with an advantage. >> i think barack obama will be formidable. >> but i have never been in a presidential debate like this and it will be a new experience. >> the president is going to lose the first debate next week. he will lose it. >> cenk: i love all of that. i happen to disagree with governor governor grandholm. i think at the worse it will be a tie. look at these moments. >> i am not going to exploit age for political purposes my opponent's youth and inexperience. >> i have as much experience in the congress as jack kennedy did. >> i served with jack kennedy. jack kennedy was a friend of mine. senator, you are no jack kennedy. >> ruddy juliany. he mentioned a noun a

president obama equals america. he is our president. he does drone strikes. they might not like drone strikes because it kills family members. they might be mad at obama i get it. but if they say pastor terry terry jones represents america. this guy is a village idiot. don't you have a village idiot in sudan libya? if you pull that raving lunatic aside and said this is muslim this is one showing to ten people. this doesn't even come close to equaling america. i heard there is a rear view mirror center libya that is widely watched movie in america. nobody even knew about it until you guys started doing your protest. it had no viewers. it does not equal america. then how about big blow hards like rush limbaugh who says outrageous things whether it's about our president or muslims. he does not equal america. even loudmouths on the other side like this guy also does not equal america. okay? that is not how the country works. we need to communicate that to the muslims across the world. they think in our country if you offend religion or us you get arrested. that's not how we work in this c

is mitt romney trying. >> romney: president obama and i both care about poor and middle class families, the difference is my policies will make things better for them. we shouldn't measure compassion by how many people are on welfare. we should measure compassion by how many people are able to get off of welfare and get a better job. >> cenk: problem number 2 if you have to start your ad by talking about how great your opponent is, you are in trouble. >> i'm not a witch. i'm nothing you have heard. i'm you. i'll go to washington, and do what you would do. i'm christine o'donnell, and i approve this message. >> cenk: on-camera ads are really dicey. what is point number 3? when you are at the bottom of the barrel how do you go below the bottom of the barrel? you go to implied and obvious racism. watch this. >> let me tell you what the big problem with this president is in my opinion. he is absolutely lazy, and detached from his job. >> cenk: okay. lazy black guy. now if it's just sununu, you might say it's just sununu. i don't remember him calling bush that. george w.

in new mexico. they thought that was one of the states they were going to be able to turn. obama won it by 15 points in 2008. he seems to be up an all the polling there right now. get out of dodge. get out of new mexico. they sent him to nevada and colorado. that's their plan to turn these states. i worked for mike dukakis in 1988 when he pulled out of the florida which was great for me, because all the senior staffers left and became the senior staffer in florida. the feeling is you know where the campaign's going when you see people being pulled like that. >> they are out of new mexico, ran for the hills in pennsylvania, ran for the hills even though michigan has perfectly height trees trees that are the perfect height. none the less, they've fled that state. >> they've taken money, not necessarily staffers. there's no more advertising going to tennessee and michigan. one interesting thing about that it's mutual disarmament. obama has stopped their ads in pennsylvania and michigan. that could hurt when you don't have any advertising. >> that's him giving up on three critical swing
